    Any tips on Elf emotions???

    Hello all,
    Throughout all my time devoted to learning the lore of LOTR, I have found myself with an unquelling passion for Elves; no matter how limited the capacity is for RP. However I find an issue with how much emotion I am supposed to give them. My main Elf is basically a linguist, and scholar. Cold, but not un-friendly, and knowledgeable. But there are times, and situations where he gets angry. Quite angry. Is that alright to do? Because Elves are very complicated to RP, at least as I have heard.

    I am not new to RP itself, or to the lore of the Elves. But their basic temperment, and conversational choice, along with display of emotion has eluded me.

    And, and all help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Well, Elves, just like Men (and hobbits and dwarves), have their own personalities. Some are cooler and some are hotter in temperament than others.

    Elves can become wrathful, even in the Third Age- Thranduil is a good example of that- or they can be more light-hearted even in the face of danger, like Legolas at Caradhras. It is my opinion that Feanor-type wrath would be rarer amongst Elves in the Third Age since they, as a species, are older and wiser (and many of those stingy Noldor have sailed West), /but/ that it is not necessarily extinct... I imagine Elladan and Elrohir slaying orcs ruthlessly for years after their mother's passing to the West was not the most cool-headed thing, for instance.

    This is just my opinion. Some folks may have different ones. But Elves would be right boring if they all had the same temperaments
